The Moons Promise

  
let me hold your heavy heart
gently caress the pain away
with my glowing light
lean on me to shed your tears
let it soak into my moon-dust skin
feel the freedom if you will
that all the sadness
will one day
disappear

every night you can count on me
from a waxing smile
to a waning goodbye
I will always be here
even when you think I’m not
believe, not in me but yourself
that all the sadness
will one day
disappear

so much sadness in this world
tears overflowing lips, swelling craters
with pools that glow
you can see all the tears
dripping into space
each one heading for a star
and when you see a twinkle
believe, someone’s sadness
disappeared
